Smart Talk Road Trip visits the Governor's Residence

What to look for on Smart Talk Friday, December 7, 2018:

The last Smart Talk Road Trip of the year takes us to the Governor's Residence in Harrisburg. Inside the Front Street home, we'll discuss Governor Tom Wolf's recent re-election and his plans and priorities for the next four years.  Will Wolf push for more money for education as he has in his first four years in office?  What about a tax on natural gas drilling that has failed to make it through the legislature each year?  Other issues that may be discussed are what the state will do, if anything, with regards to reducing emissions that contribute to climate change and how Congressional district boundaries will be drawn in the future.

First Lady Frances Wolf also joins the conversation to talk about the initiatives and platforms where she is focusing her attention.  Those include the arts and education.

The holiday season is a great time to visit the Governor's Residence that is decked out with holiday decorations.  We'll have photographs on this site after the show.

The Governor's Residence is almost 50 years old and has a history of its own.  Smart Talk explores that history and the art in the residence with Juli Bossert, Executive Residence Manager.
